  • With its presence, clarity, space and timbral accuracy, this is sure to be one of the best sounding jazz records you've heard
  • Not quite as 'out there' as some others - those of you with a taste for adventurous jazz will still find much to love
  • 4 1/2 stars:"... the most important thing about Something Else! was that, in its angular, almost totally oppositional way, it swung and still does; like a finger-poppin' daddy on a Saturday night, this record swings from the rafters of the human heart with the most unusually gifted, emotional, and lyrical line since Bill Evans first hit the scene."
